The Northern Regional chairman of the New Patriotic Party Mohammed Hafiz Bantima (Samba) has called on media houses not to engage unrecognized groups claiming to be affiliated to the party.
This comes in the wake of a barrage of press conferences in the week making a case for their favorite aspirant to become flagbearer for the 2024 elections.
Mr Bantima Samba in a statement directed such groups to seize any activity of presidential primaries and media engagements untill the green light is given to do so.
According to him, failure to adhere to these directives will attract severe sactions to such groups.
“Failure to adhere to the above will attract disciplinary measures as the regional executive committee is not ready to allow a chaotic front of the party in the region,” Mr Samba cautioned.
However, he urged the media to rather engage official party structures in the region on party related issues.
“Media houses are entreated to seek clarifications on party issues from official party structures and not to countenance mushroom groups whose sole aim is to destabilize the front of the NPP in the region,” he stressed.
